This also drives me CRAZY!
Especially with big 'projects'.
It halts the system for about 30seconds (and I'm on a 12core with 48gb ram!)
I really dont understand Adobe. You make great stuff but do you ever test it yourself?
If you are a programma, and you encounter this in a production, you will go mental.
Same for the rendering in Multicore, and suddenly for no reason (or some plugin is singlecore only) the rendering drops to 1 core, the system because unusable. Everything stalls, the rendering takes ages! This happens on 4 macpro's with all latest SL and AE updates!
Still the same old problems like CS4. Please make it better!
